Opening your very own café can be equally as daunting as it is exciting.
We set up our café on Laurence Street, situated right in the heart of Drogheda, with one aim. To provide great food and great coffee to the people of Louth, Meath, and beyond. Three years on, it hasn’t exactly gone too badly. We’ve even opened up a sister café Plate & Palette in nearby Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath.
From the beginning, we’ve based our menu (and our name) on our philosophy of using five good things. A delicious soup, a crackin’ sandwich, one of our favorite brunch dishes (with a twist), our signature coffee, and a tasty sweet treat. Needless to say, we use the freshest, locally sourced ingredients available. And, as a local café, we’ve tried our best to create an environment where everyone feels welcome. Somewhere people want to return time and time again. We want Five Good Things to become your go-to spot for weekends, weekdays, and everything in between. Somewhere you simply can’t resist popping into when you are nearby or planning a trip to when you’re not. Everyone has a favorite coffee spot, and our aim is to become yours.
First and foremost, Five Good Things is a café run by food lovers, with foodies in mind. As well as serving up the classics, we’re obsessed with trying out new recipes, bringing a new flavor, a new approach, and a new dimension to the food scene in Drogheda. Take our potato hash for example. Sure, it consists of classic ingredients like crunchy, crispy potato, and black pudding, but it takes more than that to stand out amongst the café crowd here in Drogheda. That’s why spice our potato hash with garlic aioli, hot sauce, and parmesan cheese. Tempted? What not order one right now, online.
Above all else, opening our little café has given us the opportunity to get creative, unleash our passion for food while getting to know our customers and having a laugh in the process.
